insufficent PSU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
can an insufficient PSU (sig rig) cause the CPU temp to skyrocket after reaching a certain OC voltage provided cooling is sufficient?

example, in my case:

Max load temp P95 @ 3.4Ghz 1.23v = 65C
Max load Temp P95 @ 3.6Ghz 1.33v = 85C

To be blunt, no. An insufficient psu will simply cause instability and shut downs in worst case situations.

More power = more heat. Be it increasing the voltage or allowing more amps to go through the chip. You've reached the point where your cooler is becoming insufficient.
